Elevating Addiction Treatment Skills and Practice through the Neurobiological Advances in Addiction

April 9 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This event will explore the the neuroscience of addiction, the impact of policy and historical treatment approaches, and an exploration of the dynamics of stigma and discrimination as primary barriers to addiction care. This webinar will set a base of shared understanding that will facilitate the introduction and implementation of other evidenced based practices in the areas of trauma informed care (TIC), recovery oriented systems of care (ROSC), and harm reduction.


  1. Develop ways to enhance traditional treatment models and clinical approaches to adapt to the most current neuroscience and research to treat substance use disorders in more effective ways.
  2. Explain how understanding addiction as a chronic health condition can enhance the implementation and the utilization of evidenced based interventions such as trauma informed care (TIC) and recovery-oriented systems of care (ROSC).
  3. Develop effective client centered strategies to address SUDs while supporting personal recovery and prevention.
  4. Define and understand the neuroscience of addiction to address and remove treatment barriers and obstructions such as bias and discrimination towards people with substance use disorders and improve outcomes.
